Last 3/4 weeks I made a lot of changes in samba so that the installation
of Exchange 2010 could be possible with samba 4 DCs.
The final result is really positive as I'm able to install exchange in
less than 30 minutes when running samba on my laptop and a windows
2008R2 server with exchange installation in virtualbox.
The patch set to do so is here:
I still have to review it but I think it gives an idea of the change I
had to do. The bad news is that it seems that exchange didn't run very
smoothly when installed with samba (for the moment).
I don't have plans to work on this and maybe not in the next months or
so, still I'm wondering if there is people who could be interested to
run this kind of setup (samba 4 DCs + exchange on windows server).
The positive side effect of the work on the schema is a huge speedup
when schema are modified and also much more reliability in the schema
